Biological and Pharmacological Properties of Aconitum chasmanthum

Saeed Anwar, Bashir Ahmad, Muhammad Subhan, Waseem Gul and Nazar-ul-Islam

Crude methanolic (90%) extract of Aconitum chasmanthum as well as various fractions of the same obtained by using different solvent systems were screened for biological and pharmacological activities such as antifungal, antibacterial, insecticidal and Brine shrimp cytotoxic activities. It was observed that the antifungal activity varies from negligible to strong depending upon the solvent system used for the extraction. All the fractions exhibited remarkable antifungal activity against Trichophyton mentagrophyte. However the activity against other organisms varies from no activity to strong inhibition. Antibacterial, insecticidal activities and Brine shrimp cytotoxicity results are also presented.
